This beer takes me back to the Hawaiian isles, where there are hundreds of thousands of coconut trees lining the dusty streets. There was a decent amount of foam, which topped the deep copper coloring. The coconut aroma filled the air as I took the first sip. For a brown ale this was surprisingly malty. But the second, third, and fourth sips really brought the beer to life. Under the malt came more coconut, and then a little bit of hops came out from beneath the layers. I enjoyed this brew, but some may find it a bit too sweet for a brown. A definite must if vacationing in the tropics of the Pacific Ocean.
